I found a bottle of this mezcal for $34 in the duty-free shop at the airport in San Jose, Costa Rica. It was in a 700ml bottle. 37.5% alcohol. The nose is non-descript with light mineral earth and green pepper. Oily and viscous on the palate, with papaya and mango flavors in the background. A wisp of smoke creeps in on the finish. Overall, this mezcal comes up short in flavor, and the low ABV makes it taste diluted. While I wouldn’t call it a bad sipper, there are plenty of espadins with more character and punch. I would use it as a mixer. LOT: 18-19
